'In a world where musicians seem increasingly content to follow established formulas, it's encouraging to find a band that can defy boundaries with skill and grace... The Alchemystics are not content to rely on standard rhythms or trite chord progressions. Reggae beats are infused with hip-hop lyricism and techno innovations to create a sound that is polished and refreshingly unpredictable.' ---- Leslie McIntye EAST COAST PERFORMER 'This is a band with a winning combination of sounds and a habit of delivering non-stop grooves' --- James Heflin VALLEY ADVOCATE Intricate wordplay, irresistible hooks, positive messages, soulful roots, old-school vocal harmonies, and intense passion are a few of the elements which combine to form the powerful and unmistakable sound of the Alchemystics. Formed in 2003, the Alchemystics melds the vocal stylings of veteran reggae musician Ras Jahn; guitar, lead and harmony vocals by Ian-I; compelling lyrics by MC Force ; deep rhythms of drummer Demse Zullo and world-traveled bassist Garrett Sawyer; and the keyboard artistry of Jay Metcalf.
